The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites university students to participate in the fifth edition of ESA Academy‚Äôs Space Debris Training Course, which will be held online between 16 and 25 May 2022. The deadline for applications is 12 April 2022. 

Participating University students will be provided with an introduction to the concept of space debris, why it is necessary to address this problem, and how the mitigation policies set by ESA apply to missions. Participants will not only learn about the space debris environment and mitigation technologies and future challenges such as large satellite constellations, but also about how it impacts spacecraft operations and potential future solutions.  Taught by ESA experts as well as external experts in the sector, the course will be delivered through formal technical lectures complemented by hands-on exercises based on a real-life case study. 

In order to participate, students must be aged minimum 18 years old, be a citizen of an ESA Member State, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania or Slovenia, be enrolled as a Master or PhD student in a university for the year 2021-2022 (not graduating before the training course) and be studying for a scientific or engineering degree and have minimum knowledge of space technology. 

Selected students will be requested to attend all 6 afternoon sessions and 2 full days live.

Upon completion of the Training Course students will be evaluated via an online questionnaire and will receive a certificate of participation and a course transcript, allowing them to request ECTS credit(s) from their respective universities.
